Grab your tin foil hats and your barf bags, you're in for a rough one! 

Hi weirdos welcome to another episode of KEEP IT WEIRD, the podcast for all things strange and unusual. Each week we get together to chat about something WEIRD and sometimes GROSS and this week it's GROSS!

Ashley starts us off with a REAL OR HOAX segment featuring the sad, strange and especially sick story of Mary Toft- a servant who lived in the 1700s who tried to make it out of her impoverished life with a fraud so vile it's hard to even type it up. Let's just say it involves innocent bunnies being shoved up a vagina. There's no way to beat around that bush.

Lauren swoops in to save the day with a CONSPIRACY THEORY that Queen Elizabeth I wasn't quite herself. In fact, she was so much so not herself that she was a man. Sure, part of the reasoning behind this conspiracy theory is misogynistic AF - but it's interesting nonetheless.

Debbie Downer brings us down again with a new segment called JEEPERS CREEPERS (I hate this so much) in which we discuss an incurable genetic disease called Fatal Familial Insomnia that kills you in less than a year by ENSURING you never enter REM again. And REM is my favorite part of sleep!

And finally, Lauren fails to cheer us up by taking us on a trip for a WHERE IN THE WORLD IS KEEP IT WEIRD GOING segment-- and Back to Tokyo we go! But this time there is no delicious Ramen. There is only hell. Meet us at the hottest date spot in Japan- the Meguro Parasitological Museum! Or you can call it by it's shorter name-- THE PARASITE MUSEUM. Home of the world's longest tapeworm!
